Radio Shack seems to be having a "Closeout" sale of some of the less popular (?) Arduino/Sparkfun/etc boards.
I picked up a MEGA ADK ($20) and a motor shield ($5)
I am running out of excuses for not diving into the USB host world :-)

Questions:
1) does it have to hook up to an Android?
2) can it support a 4-port hub?
3) can you hang a quadram board on it?

Can't find the post in this thread, but am appreciative of the Tayda suggestion. Order arrived in 8 days, very well packed. Highly recommended.

I've placed more than a dozen orders with them now and never had a problem.  They quote fairly long shipping times but most of my shipments have come from Colorado and take no more than a week, max.  They are a good company to buy from.

Also, my own personal AED

Too many people in my circles have been dropping dead, and since an acquaintance pointed out that anyone can buy these now, it became untenable to perhaps not have one when it was needed.  Sigh.

Why post a marketing pic and not a pic of your actual unit?

I ordered a Rugged Circuits QuadRam board for $25 + ship, $28-something.
http://ruggedcircuits.com/html/quadram.html

That board is on deep discount and when they sell the last in stock, the price goes up.

I gave them a wish list item though. I want banks of memory-mapped I/O and the SRAM if it can work, that would be pin multipliers!

First set of PCBs from iTead.  Nothing exciting; just some DB9 rs232 breakout/analyzers:

Coin acceptor:



Unfortunately, you can put a larger coin in than can come out of the reject slot (a design bug, surely?).

See the plastic lip, barely visible, (circled) which prevents a coin that you inserted being retrieved. In this case, an Australian 50c piece, which people here are quite likely to use.

I think I know them. Didn't we get about 1000 spam messages about them? And you know what the annoying thing is? (well, one of them). I don't even live in the UK!

It's like getting a message from "your" bank telling you to log on and "reconfirm" your account details. Except you don't bank with them.

A bunch ($60 worth) of slightly out-of-spec schmartboards (not "schmart enough" they say, the grooves are too shallow).  These boards still solder very well with drag-soldering, I've used them before.

Fantastic idea.... my son learned to use one a couple of years back on his BLS medic training, and now he's an ILS he can use a manual one too. Every home should have one.

But, did you rather not consider that you move in the wrong circles?   smiley-grin
